Security Vetting

British Standard BS7858:2019

Security screening of individuals employed in a security environment.

This British Standard helps employers to screen security personnel before they employ them. It gives best-practice recommendations and sets the standard for the security screening of staff in an environment where the safety of people, goods or property is essential. This includes data security, sensitive and service contracts and confidential records.

It can also be applied to situations where security screening is in the public’s interest. It sets out all the necessary requirements to conduct a security screening process. It covers ancillary staff, acquisitions and transfers, and the security conditions of contractors and subcontractors. It also looks at information relating to the Rehabilitation of Offenders and Data Protection Acts.

Cataphract can undertake all of these enquiries for you in addition to providing a criminal record check at the appropriate level. All you need to do is give us the name, contact email and telephone of the person requiring a 7858 check and we will deal with the rest.
